How To Make Your Logo Professional

Logo design is often seen as an easy job, you just need to mix the graphic and the text, and voila, you have a Logo. In reality there’s a lot more to it, which makes the whole process of creating a logo or corporate identity is a challange.
but this would not be a big problem, if we follow the basic rules in design a logo. Here is the rules / step:

1.CREATE A GOOD DESIGN BRIEF
A Design Brief is a most important element that you need to prepare before you design a logo. As you know, the Logo is the quick representation of your company, so you need to make a good design brief to describe to the designer all thing they probably need to know about your company.


2.DEVELOP A CONCEPT
The creative part is your designer duty, but make sure that you and your designer have the same concept of the Logo Design. Make sure that you both are walk in the same line and make sure you will go to the same direction.

3.MAKE SURE TO GET MANY OPTIONS ON CONCEPT PHASE
It will make the whole process is more efficient and not wasting a time for you and your designer.

4.ALLWAYS ASK FOR A VECTOR FORMAT
Vector graphics allow a design to be infinitely scaled to any size without losing any quality, whereas raster images that are made up of pixels will distort and become blurred when the size is altered. A vector logo file can be used for any purpose, whether it’s for tiny use on a receipt, or as a huge vinyl banner on the side of a building.


5.IF NEEDED, ASK A BRAND GUIDELINES?
A brand guidelines document is like an instruction manual for your freshly baked logo, it tells you how it should be used and what best practices should be considered. For instance, the document might include details on what minimum dimensions the logo works at before becoming illegible, which version of the logo should be used on dark backgrounds and when it’s best to use the mono version.

That's it. I guess the rules are simple and easy to follow. Hope you'll get a great Logo for your company.

How to Become Freelancer with 7 wonder steps

Not easy to do if we decide to stop working from traditional jobs and decided to work as a freelancer. Many people even decided to make it as a side job, not the main job. But not a few who really want to pursue the freelance world as his main job.

Not easy when we want to be a freelancer, especially if we do not know how to begin. Here I try to give you some advice How to Become Freelancer, based on my experince. It may not a complete guide, but i hope it can help for you to start your journey on Freelancer work.

1. Know what your skills
Many people do not really know what skills and talents. As a Freelancer, you should really know what areas to be your field. You can have the skills as a blog writer, SEO Expert, and also a jurnalist. You must choose one of those talents. This is so you can focus and be able to become expert on these skills.

2. Make sure again, what service will you sell (niche service).
For one talent area you select, develop longer a niche service. For example, I focus on the T-Shirt illustration services, and it became my niche service. Although I am ready to accept clients with a wide range of uses in the field of graphic design.

3. Create a list of resources that you must have.
Starting to become a freelancer, supposing you start a new business or company. Fixed capital is needed there. But never be feared, the capital is not a constraint, which means if you have the passion and intention.

4. Discipline
Freelancer is not a completely free world. Be careful with your hours, you can just get a client from a different time zone area with you, but you still have to determine when you are working. 8-9 hours to 1-2 hours of rest remains a most ideal working hours. a plus point as a freelancer is you can determine when your working hours will begin. Be careful also with your PC / Laptop. Your computer can be very useful for working, but can also be used to share on Facebook what you would eat at Lunch, or Tweeted how beautiful your cat after you brush it fur. Once again, create a schedule for your daily life.


5. Find clients.
All the preparations will be useless, if you do not have a client. Find your clients. You can just make an offer service, and its portfolio or namecards that you can share with your potential clients via email or in person. You can use Facebook, Tweeter, tumblr, or many other social networking site. Marketing is necessary. You can also use sites that offer freelance jobs like Odesk.com, to find your clients.
The main thing is always to establish communication with your previous clients. Remember you are a freelancer. Use the excess was to provide a more personalized approach to your clients. treat them as a friend but still professional.Selalu ask if they have comments and suggestions for your business? If you do it right, you will have a lot of loyal clients, and the project will come alone without you pursue.

6. Always Update
Every moment has always found ways and new techniques in all things. In the world of graphic design, a few years ago, maybe people will impressed to the Logo with a lot Photoshop Effect, but now, simple is beautifull. Similarly, in the world of SEO. A few years ago, collecting backlinks may increase your website rank in google, but this time it could have actually negatively affect for your website's PR. Freelance is a world full of competition. Allways update your skills and knowledge in order not to lose the competition.

7. Do not be afraid to outsurce
Do not be afraid to share the project with other freelancers. Remember, you do not have the superpower to do everything. Divide the work that can be delegated to others, so you can be more focused to start a new project, or focus on certain details so that the project give the best results. Sharing project also gives you the opportunity to get to know many different people with different skills.

That's what i can share, happy freelance day.

My First Death Metal Design

Death Metal Design


This artwork is actually my old artwork, but recently I had uploaded now. Artwork sold it difficult initially, eventually sold to one of the technical death metal band local Balinese, with a package design typography logo. This is the first time I make typography with Death Metal style. Honestly initially a little hesitant as well to demand that the roots must satisfy each side of the font. During this style typography I've ever made, at best, leading to a style of post hardcore or thrash metal (because I do not like to play detail. Hehehhehehehe). But thankfully, the end result of my work, liked by clients. check this out

Gathering Skets Community Bali

Skets Community, Pergerakan Scene Extreme Bali, Bali Underground, Bali Extreme Artwork, Desain T-Shirt Bali


Berawal dari tag pic dari FB Peppy Artenemy, maka sore itu meluncur menuju CK Sebelah Utara Kamasutra, Jl. Pantai Kuta Bali. Lumayan juga anak-anak tukang gambar jalanan yang ngumpul meski datangnya satu-satu dan ga barengan. Coplet, Reo Orch, Dede Suhita, Peppy Artenemy, Benny The Kitz, dan beberapa seniman gambar yang baru pertama kali itu saya kenal. Ngobrol ngalor ngidul tak tentu arah, dapat juga sedikit-sedikit menyadap ilmu marketing dari Masternya Extreme Artwork Bali, Dede Suhita. Well.. semoga apa yang saya dapat dari Acara Gathering ini berguna untuk perjalanan menggambar saya. amin...
